The Aphex CX500 is a 500-series gate and compressor module based on the highly popular CX1 compressor/gate rackmount unit.


The Aphex CX500 features the same Logic Assisted gate and EasyRider automatic compressor technologies. The Logic Assisted gate uses a patented design to prevent it from false triggering, clicks and chatters, ensuring reliable, accurate and stable gate operation. Once triggered, the Aphex CX 500 lets the attack, hold and release sequence follows its course.


Both compressor and gates have been designed to work seamlessly together as one integrated system so that when the gate is engaged, the EasyRider compressor is prevented from releasing avoiding as a result the compressor attempting to raise the signal level that the gate is trying to reduce avoiding uncontrolled level jumps.

The Gate section features five controls including Threshold, Attack, Hold, Release and Depth, each labelled with a set of line marks to indicate the values of each control.

The automatic compressor circuit has been tweaked to feature a fully adjustable threshold control. The program-dependent compression only features a Speed control which lets you control the release time of the compression. The output control lets you set the overall output of the module when the compressor is engaged.
